After only 5 years due to poor initial product selection a large plastic PPR hot water header pipe leaked and was not able to be repaired. This complex U-shaped 250mm pipe had over 16 connections off it . The replacement pipe had to match these existing connections exactly and need to be installed in a very tight time frame of a few hours as the hospital depended on this pipe work to maintain the correct temperature and humidity in its operating theatres.
Flow Industries measured the pipe work using laser technology ,fabricated the header, planned a shut down for the early hours of the morning and completed the replacement task in six hours with minimal disruption to the hospital. As always, careful planning paid off.
